Lifestyle is simply a life lived in style. There are many styles, choices and preferences. Philip Abadicio wants to make sure that we all have fun while living our different lifestyles in his latest TV show, "Fun wiht Philip," on GMA News TV every Saturday and Sunday from 3:00pm starting on Jun 14, 2014.
After finishing college in U.P. Diliman, Philip and his friends setup Wild Life, a clothing store catering to cool high school and college kids. One of the secret of their success is that they used the heartthrobs and sweethearts of the top schools. This marketing strategy was very successful. The lifestyle editor of the Manila Times took notice of Wild Life and invited Philip to be a contributor.
With lifestyle news—food, fashion, parties, beautiful people, travel. His job opened doors and several lifestyle experiences for him. “My network expanded and I realized I really loved lifestyle news and coverage,” he shares.
After 2 seasons each of “It’s More Fun with Philip” and “Philip Lifestyle Guy,” the objective of making sure lifestyle is understood and appreciated by a wider audience has been started. In the latest offering, “Fun with Philip,” the agenda to help and entertain is pushed even further. Chosen letter senders will experience the food, beauty treatments, fitness regimen, etc. that are featured on the show. More than this, contests both on-air and online via www.philipabadicio.com will give viewers more chances of enjoying the lifestyle features on the show.

"Fun with Philip" is a show made for lifestylers. As they say on the show, "mga Kapusong Lifestylers, we will give you the surprises for you to win the prizes!" A segment called Kwentuhang Kumot, where Philip interviews a celebrity under the sheets as he or she reveals untold secrets, will be there. Philip will also bring the occasional American tourist, Jeffrey Whitney, around the Philippines so he will be obliged to speak Filipino and try the various food, culture and lifestyles.
